This post is unfortunately six months in the making (I am that behind with some of my blogging!). I made a cardigan for a lovely newborn, Gigi, in January. I used yarn that I purchased at last year's New York Sheep and Wool Festival, and was excited to try something different from the standard baby blanket or hat gift. Although the project did require some finishing (sewing side seams together, etc), which I generally try to avoid, I am glad I forced myself to do this extra little bit of work because the final product was really wonderful. Project details follow the picture of the completed cardigan.
